Download a backup

I would like to download a backup that my linode has. Where is this file stored?

When you enable the Linode Backup Service, your Backups are stored separately from the Linode itself for safety and redundancy. While there's no way to download the disk image directly, what you can do is deploy it to a new Linode and then download a copy of the disk, or just the files you need, over SSH.

You can find instructions on how to do so in this guide.
